When did you last see a Chimpanzee in Dungarees, laughing at a Sexist, Racist and Homophobic Comedian sat next to a Newly Wed Virgin holding a Baby Called Keith and eating a Meat Paste sandwich while drinking a pint of Mild? And how long is it since you went to a Tupperware Party attended by a member of the Deferential Working Class, a Football Maverick, Bus Conductor and Streetwise Dog? And have you recently seen anyone sporting a Woollen Balaclava and Shellsuit in a Reliant Robin with a Pools Coupon Collector and Spinster wearing an 18 Hour Girdle in the back? What about a Hitchhiker thumbing a lift from a Scary Biker, a Rebel Teacher and an Unrepentant Politician all on their way to enjoy Hogmanay in England? Or a Martian with a Hitler Moustache having a game of Blow Football while eating Pineapple and Cheese on a Stick and listening to an Ugly String Quartet playing England’s World Cup Squad Song? Or how about a Rock Star Planning to Retire, Squatting in a One Screen Cinema, with the Front Door Left Open, watching Desperate Dan in a Bowler Hat teaching the Birds and the Bees to a Cast of Thousands wearing Paper Underwear? Fashions come and go, technology advances, social acceptabilities change and gender roles shift. There are so many reasons why something can be everywhere one day and on the slippery slope to oblivion the next. Chimpanzees in Dungarees - The Collection has two hundred such disappearing things, written with one sole objective...to take the proverbial and have a laugh… or is that two objectives?

About the Author
I am an accountant with a sense of humour, which most people consider a contradiction. I live in the UK on the Wirral with my wife and two bitches. That's a Border Terrier and a Cockapoo, in case you're thinking I'm living the life of an African tribe leader who believes he's a gangsta rapper. I have three grown up children but have never quite managed to grow up myself. At the age of eighteen, I was often mistaken for pop idol, Donny Osmond. Nearly four decades on and ravaged by time, the best I can now do in the look-a-like stakes is Richard Osman from BBC TV's Pointless. Osmond to Osman, how the mighty fall.
